The Vintage Theme

We are noticing a beautiful Victorian and Vintage influence in a lot of the Wedding designs hitting runways and magazines, lately. Beige, tea stained, white, bows, pearls and lace are all on our mind. So, we collected some pictures to inspire your ideas!

We love the pearl additions to this elegant and smooth vintage-inspired cake.

Local Cake designer: Sweet Thea also has some gorgeous cakes, and we're sure she could make your vintage theme idea into a masterpiece. Check out her gallery: 

The right photographer can turn your outdoor pictures into an artistic masterpiece, and we have the perfect natural props for you right here on the farm!

DJ & Allison are a husband and wife photographer team from Vancouver, who have a very impressive wedding gallery. Check them out here:

The vintage theme also opens up a world of opportunity for bridesmaids attire, and we found the perfect matching gift for all of your bridesmaids:

This exact bracelet was found on Etsy, by The Cottage Path Boutique, and would match our classic vintage silverware and serving dishes exquisitely!
